A Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is designed to subtly lift the facial features to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. PDO threads come in a variety of textures for customized treatments.
The goal of a PDO thread lift is to reposition facial and neck tissues to restore and rejuvenate youthful proportions and appearances to the face.
The ideal candidate for a PDO thread lift is experiencing early signs of aging such as mild wrinkling and sagging skin. Candidates desire a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime.
First, a local anesthetic is applied. Then, hollow needles are inserted into the area. Next, a thread is inserted through the needle. The thread itself has barbs which act as cogs to grasp, lift, and suspend the skin.
Recovery after a PDO thread lift is minimal. Most patients are able to return to work and most normal activity 1 day after the procedure with only minor discomfort. It is common for patients to experience minor inflammation and bruising which typically resolves within 1 week.
You can see immediate results right after the procedure.
A PDO threadlift can last around 1 year.
